Following his mother Marian’s death, EastEnders actor Dean Gaffney has received a flood of sympathy, with former co-stars and other actors expressing their sympathies as he tweeted a photo from the event.
He posted a picture of the funeral program on Instagram with the caption, “Gone but NEVER forgotten… ” : December 23, 1953 13/08/23 Sunset
Mom, you are missed and loved today, tomorrow, and always.
Joe Swash, who said: “Dean, all our thoughts and prayers are with you friend, was among those expressing their tributes. The kids, Stacey, and I are considering you. Welcome to join us for dinner.
I’m sorry, Dean, wrote Luisa Bradshaw-White, who played Tina Carter. Richard Blackwood, a.k.a. Vincent Hubbard, said, “Sending you my love,” and “Sending condolences, my bro.”
Helen Flanagan and Andy Whyment from Coronation Street, Danny Miller from Emmerdale, and Stephanie Waring from Hollyoaks all left supportive remarks for Dean. Stephanie also posted a red heart emoji.
Last month, Dean revealed the tragic news of Marian’s passing, claiming he was “broken” by it.
I am utterly crushed to share that my wonderful, selfless mother Marian has sadly died away,’ he tweeted beside some images of himself and his mother. I was raised as a mummy’s boy and will be one forever, so this news has absolutely shocked me.
‘I spoke to her daily, and in some ways, I’m glad it was me who discovered her dozing off.
I will never forget the wonderful times we had together, and even while I realize that everyone will experience pain at some point in their lives, 69 is never too old to experience it.
Beyond any pain I’ve ever felt in my life, he continued, “To know I will never be able to physically see or speak to her again.”
Dean, a former EastEnders star, made a comeback to television earlier this year as a candidate on I’m A Celebrity All Stars, which brought illustrious contestants back to a camp in South Africa to determine the ultimate winner.
Even though there are no plans for Robbie Jackson to return, the grandfather of two predicted last year that he would.
Dean commented, “I have a self-destruct button and people can’t comprehend why I click it, I have no idea why I pressed it,” in response to the circumstance in 2000 when Robbie was fired.
They told me, “You are either incredibly awful at picking ladies or you need to figure it out, you need to go out and find out why you are doing these things,” and I don’t blame them. I believe EastEnders just said, “Enough is enough.”
